County Troaourer C. P. Lloyd, in
pursuance with his eiders from the
county commissioners, has begun the
sale of citv and village property for
the delinquent taxes. The county will
sell tho property to tho best advan
tage to purchasers and thus again get
it on a paying basis. This order in
eludes all delinquent taxes on all real
ostato, and those who do not desire to
pay penalty incident to such sale will
do well to tret a hustle on themselves
aud pay up, for if you don't the county
will havo purchased your property and

"The World AuiiiHt Her."
i4Tho World Against Her," as given
by Agues va!lace Villa and tier sup
porting players, Is a distinct success.
The sensational element of the play is
good and keeps tho interest of the
audience throughout. Tho company
is most competent, and the members
are thoroughly up in their parts.
Miss Villa, in the principal roie, that
of Madge Carlton, who has the bulk
of tho work to do, was largely respon
sible for the success of the perform
ance. Tho minor parts, without ex
ception, are extremely well pluyed.
There are many beautiful specialties
in this box ollico winner, which are
extremely well done, and tho comedy
parts are in the hands of artists. At

Oranges From California.
Los Angelks, Cal., Feb. 10.
Ninety carloads of oranges are leaving
southern California every day for the
east. As 3(10 boxes of (JU oranges nil
fill each ear, the shipments represent
nearly 5,500,000 oranges every twenty-
four house. Shipments are particularly
heavy' from tho new district of Ked
lands. where the Oiange groves are
just coming into full bearing. Though
frosts injured many oranges on low
lands, most of the groves in Riverside,
San Bernardino and Los Angles coun
ties escaped with trifling loss.

who went to towti with a sack of rab

When asked by his mother why ho

body had asked him what was in his
sack. How many merchants are like
tho boy. They have plenty of goods
for sale, but fail to tell tho people
"what's in the tack." If you expect U
sell goods in this day and age you must
open your sack and keep shouting the
merit of your stock in trade.

A Nebraskan, by special appoint

A Look Talk.
Charlev Gilbert, of this place, was
called to the telephone here Tuesday,
says the Weeping; Water Republican,
and held a conversation direct with a
county official in Kalamz-o, Mich., a
distance of more than 700 miles. The
articulation was perfect and appar
ently as plain as it would have been in
a conversation with Omaha. The cost
of this five minute conversation to the
Kalamazoo man was $6. SO.
From Itahy in the High Chair
lo gr andma in the rocker, Cirain-O is
good for the wLo.e family. It is the
long-desired substitute for coffee.
Never upsets the nerves or injures the
digestiou. Made from pure grains it
is a food in itself. Has the taste and
appearance of the best coffee at i the
price. It is a genuine and scientific
article and is come to st.iy. It makes
for health and strength. Ask your
Grocer for Grain-O.
Many People Cannot Drink
Coffee at night. It spoils their sleep.
You can drink Grain-O when you
please and sleep like a top. For
Graiu-O does not stimulate: it nour
ishes, cheers and feeds. Yet it looks
and tastes like the best coffee. For
nervous persons, young people and
children, Grain-O is the perfect drink.
Made from pure grains. Get a pack
age from your grocer today. Try it in
place of coffee. 15 and 25c.

Whooping cough, etc. " It is idle to
experiment with other remedies,
